How To Save YouTube Videos to Your iPod or iPad
There are many occasions where one might want to download videos onto an Apple mobile device. Different apps are available online to capture streaming video off sites like Hulu.com or YouTube.com, and saving and converting the files into acceptable iPod / iPad formats. You will find several while searching around Google; many of the converters you come across are free to use as well.
Both the iPod and iPad are well-known portable devices by Apple. First released in 2001, iPods originally played mostly mp3 and DRM (Digital Rights Managed) supported files, like AAC. Over several generations, the device has evolved from a simple music player to a mobile gaming platform and all-around personal organizer in the form of iPod Touch and the iPhone. Generation 1 and 2 iPods were hard disk storage devices, and have gone on to utilize flash memory.
Apple’s iPad was introduced in April 2010, with second-generation iPad 2 out in March 2011. Running on the same OS as the iPhone and iPod Touch, iPad is designed primarily as a platform for audio and visual media, controlled by its multitouch display.
